Quick Persian Rice and Beef

I have loved participating in #SundaySupper over the last year and have made so many awesome new blogging friends.

On an episode of Chopped one of the ingredients was quail eggs. I remember thinking how adorable the little eggs looked, but slightly queasy thinking of the […]
